IANA Functions Stewardship Transition Updates

  On 14 March 2014, the NTIA announced its intention to transition its 
stewardship role of IANA functions, and called upon ICANN to launch and 
facilitate a process with the community to derive a proposal to 
transition the IANA functions to the global multistakeholder community, 
meeting the criteria set out by the NTIA.
Following community dialogue, the process for developing a proposal for 
this transition was posted on 6 June 2014. As a part of this process, a 
Coordination Group will be responsible for preparing a transitional 
proposal respective of the differing needs of the various affected 
parties of the IANA functions.

See here for a full list of the Coordination Group Representatives. 

The first face-to-face meeting of the Coordination Group will take place 
in London from 08:00-17:00 UTC on 17-18 July at the Hilton London 
Metropole Hotel.

The global multistakeholder community will be able to follow the 
Coordination Group's first meeting through the Virtual Meeting Room and 
through audio translations into these languages:

*    English
*    French
*    Spanish
*    Chinese
*    Russian
*    Arabic
*    Portuguese

In addition, the community is encouraged to join the conversation 
through use of the online discussion forum or ICANN's dedicated IANA 
Transition mailing list to discuss the transition process.
